Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1344) exclude empty parts in DurationFormatUtils
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2017 11:29:00 GMT


Gregor B. Rosenauer commented on LANG-1344:

good points, as always, a seemingly small change is not trivial to implement;)
But in my example above, I had 0 days, so you actually proved my point that it is not very
well readable...;)

So I agree with you that care should be taken what to leave out, I was also only thinking
of skipping leading or trailing empty parts.
This could be added as an option similar to {{suppressLeadingZeroElements}}.

> }}DurationFormatUtils only allow to exclude leading or trailing zeroes, but not empty
parts alltogether, e.g. when a position is 0 (0 days or hours).
> This would improve readability and look better in most cases where the duration can vary
between seconds or days and I don't want to special case, e.g. having it print 
> {{2s}} instead of {{0d 0h 00m 02s}}.
